We’ve come a long way since we first started in 2010 with just one humble hostel in Jerusalem and a few tours. It’s been quite a journey for us, and we’re incredibly grateful for the growth we’ve experienced. Today, we offer a variety of tourism services, including hostels, events, workshops, day tours, and package tours, not only in Israel but also in Egypt’s Sinai, Jordan, and the Philippines. We’re always looking for ways to improve and offer new and exciting experiences to our guests, but we never forget our roots!
We strive to remain grounded and remember where we started, always committed to supporting local businesses and communities and preserving the environment. We wanted our hostels to truly embody hospitality for every traveler who walks through our doors. We knew that as a tourism company, our goal is not only to break barriers and excel but also to make a positive impact on our society and community as much as we can, and to act in a way that benefits our environment. Our hostels in Nazareth, Tel Aviv, and Eilat operate and will continue to operate under the same model. The same applies to our tours in Abraham, which were built with the idea of creating an impact on the community. We chose to offer tours to Hebron, Jordan, and the Palestinian Authority, as well as tours focused on unique cultural communities in Israel. Our tours build bridges and promote dialogue and tolerance in Israeli society through personal encounters and indirect introductions between tourists and Israelis. From this standpoint, we participated in a campaign against the deportation of refugees, disavowed discrimination and the framing of the Nation-State Law, supported the LGBTQ+ community, supported Ethiopian Israelis, and fought for pluralism, acceptance of the other, equality, democracy, hope, and unity.
We see travel as a powerful tool for change. Our dual narrative tours offer a unique perspective, revealing the diverse facets of regions touched by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and beyond. We embed ourselves in the local communities we serve, mindful of our environmental footprint. With a commitment to sustainable travel, we actively work to reduce our carbon emissions, support local businesses, and promote eco-friendly tourism. We celebrate local art and creativity by transforming our hostels into galleries for local artists to showcase their work in our interchanging and permanent exhibitions. Abraham is not just a hostel or a tour provider; we’re a community deeply committed to making a positive impact, promoting unity, and embracing diversity in all its beautiful forms.
We remember that we are all human beings. We treat everyone we meet with respect, equality, and tolerance. Employees, guests, suppliers, customers – all receive fair treatment and a sense of security, enjoying open and sincere communication, regardless of sex, religion, nationality, or lifestyle. All are welcome!
We believe that everyone is part of a social fabric. We take part in networks and communities and strengthen them, encouraging cooperation and teamwork among our employees and stakeholders. We respect the value of the family in its various forms and work to create a relaxed, informal atmosphere.
We are part of the world and feel
responsibility towards it. It is important
for us to create sustainable tourism with
consideration for the natural and human
environment in which we operate.
We understand that to have a positive
impact on the world, we must be a profitable
and growing business organization. We run
a professional, high-quality organization that
enables us to meet the needs of our customers
while creating impact and encouraging activism
to promote the goals in which we believe.
We see tourism as a force that can
change reality and be beneficial for people,
communities, and the world as a whole.
We maintain a joyful approach to work in
particular, and to life in general. We strive to
be creative and flexible, and to adjust to changing conditions and surprises. Our aim is consistent progress and development, always acting with love and enthusiasm, with a smile and in a spirit of empathy towards those around us, whoever they may be. We strive to enjoy both the fruits of our labor and the ways in which we work to arrive at them.
We’re committed to making a difference in society, the community, and the environment. Our mission is to promote sustainable tourism as a means of strengthening tolerance and building bridges, fostering a sense of unity in a diverse society, and supporting small businesses. We believe in getting to know different groups of people, including those living in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and beyond. That’s why we offer unique experiences such as double narrative tours to Hebron, trips to Jordan and the Palestinian Authority, visits to ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods, and tours of regions with refugee populations. Through these initiatives, we hope to promote understanding and compassion, and leave a positive impact on the world around us.
